Koster to appeal MOSIRA ruling

February 22nd, 2012 in News

Attorney General Chris Koster said this morning he will appeal Cole County Circuit Judge Dan Green's Monday ruling that the Missouri Science and Innovation Reinvestment Act, known as "MOSIRA," is unconstitutional.

In a news release, Koster said: "The Missouri Science and Innovation Reinvestment Act is an important economic development tool that can bring high-tech jobs to Missouri, and preserve jobs that are already here.

"I don't want to see important job-creating legislation fail."

Koster added: "We intend to appeal this matter to its conclusion."
